Have you ever seen a Japanese zen rock garden? The ridged texture of hte blocks in this project remind me of a design I would rake into the sand in one of those soothing, miniature gardens. The ridged blocks are worked in one piece, each building off the last block made. Each square is picked up from the side of the last square, and they are completely reversible. A mobius benefits greatly from a reversible fabric. This simple accessory is crocheted in one piece, seamed with a couple rows of same sc-tbl. The edging is worked in one simple row, along perimeter, reminding me of the rocks you could arrange around your raked design in the zen garden. Interestingly, you would think there are two rounds of edging: top and bottom. However, the twist is in the moebius twist!
